Fablehaven: Rise of the Evening Star by Brandon Mull



This is the second book in the Fablehaven series and it is even better than the first. This is a children's novel that adults will also enjoy as I couldn't put it down. Volume three is due out in 2008 and I will be in line to get it.



DESCRIPTION:

A New York Times Bestseller!

At the end of the school year, Kendra and her brother, Seth, find themselves racing back to Fablehaven, a refuge for mythical and magical creatures. Grandpa Sorenson, the caretaker, invites three specialists- a potion master, a magical relics collector, and a mystical creature trapper- to help protect the property from the Society of the Evening Star, an ancient organization determined to infiltrate the preserve and steal a hidden artifact of great power. Time is running out. The Evening Star is storming the gates. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, it could mean the downfall of other preserves and possibly the world. Will Kendra learn to use her fairy gifts in time? Will Seth stay out of trouble? Can they overcome paralyzing fear? Find out in book 2 of this bestselling series.

I loved both of these books, as did my 14 yr. old son. I love that the main character is a girl. Most children's books of this type have a boy hero, so was glad to see a female in that role. I am looking forward to book #3.

I listened to Brandon Mull speak last week. His first book was rejected, but Deseret Book/Shadow Mountain liked his writing and encouraged him to submit again. That's when he wrote Fablehaven. Interesting story.

My 12-year old son listened to this on audio. He loved it.
